I suppose a more reasonable solution would be to prohibit cell phone
providers / auto manufacturers / etc.
from restricting any features designed in by the manufacturer.  That way,
Apple, Motorola, Nokia, et. all could
decide what features they wanted to put in their products and consumers
could choose the product they want
without Verizon, AT&T, Ford, GM getting in the way.

But laws that follow common sense seem to be a rarity these days.
